Swe Fly heads south

“Thousands of British travellers are likely to have lost cash following the collapse of a Scandinavian low-cost airline. Swe Fly, based near Stockholm in Sweden, has stopped flying. Three months ago, it launched flights from Luton and Leeds-Bradford to the Swedish airport of Skavsta, with connections to Lahore in Pakistan.

Digital Photography

It seems I’ve taken 4537 digital photographs this past year, 126 rolls of 36 exposure film and a cost of £737 from www.7dayshop.com, more if I’d bought it at a proper shop. I didn’t pay for the camera i have, but i can easily afford to buy a new camera every year at this rate and still save money. I used to shoot slide film btw so printing was never a cost.
